I am a fully qualified, Blue Badge Tourist Guide based in London. I have wide experience of guiding individuals,family groups, tour groups and groups of students of all ages around the iconic sites of London and locations within easy reach of London such as: Oxford, Stratford, Bath, Windsor etc. I would be delighted to welcome you to this fantastic city and to ensure that you have the best possible experience whilst on your trip. Using a Blue Badge Guide ensures the quality of service that you will enjoy and you should be wary of "Free Tours" (they often aren't!) and "Fully Qualified" without the Blue Badge or naming their qualification, from other guides. Please check out my website to see how I can work with you on making your trip to England the very best experience it can be!

Besides being obviously extremely knowledgeable, John consistently went above and beyond to make sure our tour group had a great time. We were a group of exhausted college students, bogged down by jet lag, and yet we were each completely enraptured in every story and...More

John, is a great guy to have if you take a guided walk. His knowledge of London is second to none and he has a great manner and loves to get to know you during the walk.
